Festival approval put money before families

Letter to the editor of Cessnock Advertiser 15 October 2014

Dear Editor,

I would like to take this opportunity to respond to Matt Polin's comments regarding the recent music festival at Mount View (Letters to the Editor, 1/10/14).

Matt responds by saying he is impressed by what he has seen on this occasion, although it was not his age- specific demographic.

I, on the other hand, being a grandmother of two lovely grandchildren who live at Mitchells Road, Mount View, would like to shine another light on this event.

Never do I complain at the opportunity to mind my grandchildren, however to have your grandchildren in tears, pleading with their parents for them to stop the noise, personally I find rather disturbing.

Having to remove your own children from their family home in order to gain day time rest and sleep of a night is absolutely disgraceful.

I personally visited their home on the Saturday afternoon; no wonder they could not attain any form of sleep.

From the moment of arrival I was confronted with offensive levels of noise, which did not cease the whole time I was there.

It would seem monetary gain comes first, families rate second in this local council area.

I for one find this to be an ultimate display of arrogance and disrespect towards local residents and their families by not only council, also by the event.

Robyn Martin
Aberdare Road, Aberdare.
